As we know, when you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you die. And in Reigns’ stylized adaptation of the HBO series, I died. A lot. Over and over again.

And beginning in October, so will you.

Reigns: Game of Thrones will launch in October on PC, iOS, and Android. It’s an adaptation of Reigns, the award-winning card-based kingdom simulator from the indie developer Nerial (aka François Alliot) and game publisher Devolver Digital. It will sell for $4, and while you may think that being a paid app might be in for a Red Wedding on the free-to-play dominated mobile platform, Devolver sold more than 2 million copies of the 2016 Reigns on PC and smartphones, and that’s a significant achievement in a mobile-led game market that research firm Newzoo projects could hit $137.9 billion in 2018.

This is Devolver’s first partnership with HBO, and Game of Thrones by far represents its biggest brand partnership. The TV adaptation of author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series is a media juggernaut, becoming one of the most valuable brands in media.

You can play as a number of characters from Game of Thrones, such as Jon Snow (“You know nothing, Jon Snow” applies whenever I’m in charge, based on how poorly I play this game), Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen. As with the first Reigns and Reigns: Her Majesty (which put you in the role of a ruling queen), you make decisions by swiping left or right on cards as they appear on the screen. Your choices decide the story.

GamesBeat Summit - It's a time of change in the game industry. Hosted online April 28-29.

It also includes minigames, and it enables you to create your own stories that depart from the series. One of the examples the press release Devolver sent us brings up exploring a Seven Kingdoms in which Sansa Stark and Jamie Lannister had married.

Daenerys may have said, “I will do what queens do, I will rule.” But all I do is die, my kingdom in ruins around me. You’ll find out if you can live up to the Mother of Dragons’ quote in October.
